Something unusual happened on the way to the Matron Two-Year-Old Colt Pace, with 169 freshmen paying all their stakes fees to remain eligible, only three colts dropped in to race in the Saturday, November 7 feature.

The three entries were Delmarvalous, High Def Z Tam and Nova Artist, who will each receive one-third of the purse. It was estimated that the purse for the event final would be around $265,000.

This Saturday, The Matron Two-Year-Old eliminations consist of two $33,213 filly paces and one $55,600 trotting colt and one $52,600 trotting filly division elim.

Last Fall, If I Can Dream set a then world record of 1:51.1f, since broken, and a track record, winning the Matron Two-Year-Old Colt Pace.

Three Matron three-year-old divisions are scheduled for entries this Sunday. The Dover Downs entry box is open from 10 a.m. and will close promptly at 12 noon sharp. The entry fee is $1,000 payable to The Hambletonian Society.
